Was Barack Obama worried that if legislators had to live under Obamacare they might be more sympathetic to the law’s critics? Many believe that’s exactly why the President administratively arranged a special waiver for Congress...
“It is critical that we have as many people committed to government accountability, fiscal responsibility, and full and complete repeal/replace of ObamaCare as possible in the U.S. Senate. The people of Florida can be confident that Rep. DeSantis is one of those people. We wish him the best in this endeavor....

Watch a discussion with Heather Higgins, president and CEO of Independent Women’s Voice, and Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal at the NRI Ideas Summit in Washington, D.C., May 1, 2015.
The chairwoman of the supposedly nonpartisan Federal Election Commission is under fire for planning a forum next month on women in politics "stacked" with Democrat-leaning speakers and apparent Hillary Clinton supporters.
“The Federal Election Commission was created in 1975 to enforce the laws that govern American elections. Holding a forum to discuss the broad topic of women in the political arena, while a worthy topic, seems outside of the scope of the FEC’s mandate. But it is particularly outrageous that in creating this event, they have stacked the panels with women with one ideological view....

On March 2, two days before the case was argued before the Supreme Court, Independent Women’s Voice, a conservative nonprofit organization, published results of a survey indicating that 61 percent of the nearly 1,000 people it polled -- all of whom lived in states with federal health exchanges that are at risk of losing these subsidies -- had heard little or nothing about King v.

All Americans want workers to be able to take time off when they are sick, need to care for someone who is sick, or welcome a new child to their family. That, in part, is why the overwhelming majority of businesses provide paid leave benefits to their workers, even though there is no legal requirement that they do so. Of course, there are still Americans who lack adequate paid leave time and struggle to balance the needs of their families with their jobs. Connecticut lawmakers want to ease that burden, and are contemplating legislation that would create a new state-based entitlement program to provide participating workers with up to 12 weeks of leave, paid at 100% of salary, each year. Sadly, however, this new program could backfire, particularly on the most vulnerable workers, by reducing employment opportunities and discouraging the creation of flexible employment arrangements.
"Today we urge the Supreme Court Justices to uphold ObamaCare as originally written -- not as later revised and extended by the IRS when only a few states took the 'carrot' of subsidies and signed up to be state exchanges -- and free millions of Americans in as many as 37 states from the burdens of ObamaCare’s mandates and penalties. A decision against the government will not repeal ObamaCare but will only return the system to what was written in the law as passed by Congress. Such a ruling would undo the decision by HHS and the IRS, on their own authority, to send tax dollars to insurance companies in states that declined to accept them because those states chose to protect their citizens as best they could from mandates and penalties...
